My Company are planning on buying a new Dell R510 Server and we would like to buy a Raid controller with it. However the Dell H200 and H700 Raid Controllers apprently only except Dell Hard Drives which are a lot more expensive with no gains. Has any body had any experience with these raid controllers when using non-Dell drives?
will they still work or will we need to buy dell drives?
I seem to be getting contradicting information as some forums say that it is ok only with H200 however dell say you must use dell drives however I am unsure if this is just a marketing ploy to make you buy there drives.
